Douglas 'Grubby' Grice

Douglas 'Grubby' Grice was a fighter pilot based at Biggin Hill during the Battle of Britain. He crash landed twice during his fighter career, including once in France. On a third occasion he was forced to bale out after his aircraft caught fire, suffering burns that meant he never flew again.

Many thanks to Headstream and Yesterday for providing these pictures, which come from their Heroes of Biggin Hill, broadcast for the first time on 12 August 2010.
